to this ukraine crisis. our chief national security correspondent, jim sciutto, monitoring what's going on. and, you know, these diplomats, u.n. envoy basically held there. it getting ugly. but maybe lavrov and kerry, they do have a personal relationship that goes way back. maybe they can come up with something. >> they do. relationship that helped with that chemical weapons deal in certi syria. you look at the incident with the u.n. envoy and other skirmishes. you remember yesterday we saw ukrainian and russian soldiers go nose to nose and shots fired in the air. this is why you need diplomacy now. you need the sides talking to each other, to deescalate. because you have a very volatile mix of guys with guns on the ground there, and emotions that have been stoked up by russian propaganda. and remember, these gangs, these ununiformed gangs, kind of pro-russian militias, there is a russian hand in that. that's a tool of russian power on the ground there. this is not happening by accident. those guys coming together. and you know, we've talked about this before. once you get that genie out of the

, groups like the fellowship, family research council. describes senator jim inhofe, perhaps most anti gay politician, as sort of a mentor and hero. and he is has studied in the united states. these ideas are being sort of broadcast overseas and amplified and taken to a whole new level in uganda. >> inhofe, by the way, we checked with him. he says, you know, he's -- had nothing to do with this legislation. he rejects it. he says i certainly disagree with the controversial legislation that uganda may enact in the coming days. and as i've said before, it is my hope that the country will abandon this unjust and harsh legislation. similar statement coming from other evangelical groups saying it's one thing to be anti gay, if you will. but it's another thing to say that gay people should spend the rest of their lives in jail or even be executed for engaging in homosexual activity. so it seems to me, and correct me if i am wrong, that there may have been some inspiration. but what they're doing in uganda goes far beyond what some of these evangelical groups may have wanted. >> i think you're exa
